The number of people testing positive for Covid-19 in Stoke-on-Trent has increased over the past 24 hours.
New figures released by Public Health England showed that 115 people had tested positive positive for the deadly coronavirus in the past 24 hours – an increase of nine from the day before.
But, with limits to the number of people the UK Government can test for the condition, the likely number of cases across the city could be far higher.
In the rest of Staffordshire there have been 570 people testing positive.
While the number of people diagnosed in the city has increased, the number of people having died at the University Hospitals of North Midlands has remained at 51.
In nearby Cheshire East there have been 196 confirmed cases.
Public Health England has now confirmed 51,608 people have been tested positive for Covid-19, with 3,802 new cases in the past 24 hours. There have been 5,373 who have died after contracting the disease.
